For as long as I can remember I have always enjoyed late nights. As a kid I loved late nights because it was forbidden. I was supposed to be in bed, yet here I was hiding on the landing of the stairs secretly watching the television programs my parents were watching, or secretly listening to the conversations between my parents or the company they had over.
Favorite Time of Day #BoostYourBlog Challenge

Every person has a list of favorites and it changes over the course of your life as you grow through different life stages and maturity levels, or as you have new life experiences. One favorite is time of day. What is your favorite time of day? Oddly enough my preference has never changed! For as long as I remember I have always preferred a special time as my favorite. However, I feel as if my favorite time does not qualify as I am a night owl, yes, that was my sad attempt at a little humor.
As a teenager late nights are an obvious preference as that’s when all the fun happens! All the parties happen at night, all the trouble happens at night. I had a tendency to hang out with older people or friends my age that had no curfew, so late nights were many!
As a post teen late nights were obvious as I was always one to be game for closing the bar, shots, and tipsy dancing on the dance floor with music pounding to the migraine center of my brain and loving every minute of it!
As a Mom of four I still prefer super late nights. I enjoy the quiet evenings while the house sleeps. I can watch tv with no fighting, arguing or a barrage of questions, needs and loud toys screeching in my ear. The lack of busy helps me focus on blogging, school work or some gaming if I choose to do so. I rarely take this time to read books for review, as I read better with noise, call me strange but it helps me focus.
There is also an awesome perk from my love of the night, when my kids get older it would be very difficult for them to risk their lives (my threats) by sneaking out of the house or worse yet, sneaking others in. How? Well I am a late night person, especially on the weekends when I know I can sleep in. Most weekends I am still awake by the time my husband wakes up for the day.
My husband is an early morning riser. Early morning literally means early morning. My husband starts his day at roughly 3-4 am. Crazy right?! Not my thing, not even close. This includes weekends. No sleeping in for him, he hates sleeping in and it spoils his day if somehow he accidentally does.
With my super late nights and his early morning shenanigans, there will be little to no chance of my kids getting into any type of late night trouble!
So yes, though it is technically night, my favorite time of day is late night. MeMe, the oldest goes to bed between 9 and 10, so my quiet time usually starts around 11 and lasts as long as I decide! I love this time, and it is a quiet relaxing end to my day that helps my bedtime ritual, a quiet wind time time is perfect for this busy Mom!
What is your favorite time of day? Why do you favor that time?
